Have been for lunch and dinner but Sunday Brunch is the best time to go! Buffet style and many different types of food to choose from...breakfast food to ham, pork, italian etc.

The restaurant is casual and the food is plentiful. Nothing over the top but average. I have had better and a lot worse. I think the atmosphere is what makes this place. It is not a typical chain restaurant.

I love the pizza here. The staff for the most part is nice and friendly but a couple time we had one that was kinda rude and acted annoyed when she took our order.

Went with a group of 9 people and the service was slow, orders wrong and the bills for everyone was wrong. Food was just average. Our waitress was new and this was what caused the issues, but in my opinion the restaurant should have had a seasoned waitress working alongside the new waitress for a large group. My displeasure is... More

Have been to Sals many times and always enjoy the food. My favorite is the French dip. They also have really good fries! The pizza is delicious and so are the salads and desserts. They have a bar and dining area and also offer a buffet at times. Staff has always been helpful and friendly.

I have eaten at Sal's for lunch a number of times. Most of the time I get their lunch buffet that consists of a salad bar, a couple of entrées, vegetable dishes, and really good pizza. They do have other menu items but I just can't resist their buffet most of the time. They do have a rib eye sandwich... More

We frequent Sal's often, and the food is always very good, portions are ample. We usually sit in the bar area as we love the atmosphere in there. When we went with a large family group (eight of us) they were very accommodating, service was great ( we kept them hopping) and our visiting family members loved it. Expansive menu... More

Sal's needs new management and an overhaul... Last time we ate there it has really gone down hill. The buffet had not changed. The exact same menu/items as 3 years ago and overpriced for what it is. My husband was sick for 2 days after eating their lunch buffet. Not sure what caused it but the only thing different he... More

The women's restroom had feces smeared on the inside of one stall, the next stall had a plunger in the middle of it and another stall's walls were so close to the toilet a person's legs had to be straight forward to sit. The men's restroom had a roll of paper towels sitting on the middle of the wet countertop.... More
